Jupiter is a fun ride. I love this kind of movie. Amazing visuals,great SciFi story line. I don't understand why people hate on this film so much. Sure there are some run of the mill plot points but i still really liked this movie, maybe people just love to hate these days. Not the worst film I've ever seen by far. I'd say ignore the haters and give it a go, make up your own mind. This film isn't in my top ten but i didn't hate it. I get the feeling that there are 'Matrix' haters stalking everything the Wachowski's do now to hate on them cause they didn't like they way the Matrix ended. FYI i like their ending. Am i the only one? I watch movies like i read books, even tho' i might not like the ending, i respect the storytellers right to tell the story they want to tell.
A brain-squeezing Space Opera. What more do you want?
'Jupiter Ascending' was panned (I suspect) by the same small brains that only love to slag by comparison. I'm thinking of "Kings Solomon's Mines" in the shadow of "Raiders". I'm thinking of "Fifth Element" being compared to 'Star Wars'. I'm thinking "new Batman" to "old Batman". And on, and on.
Well, a fickle fie on that that.
"Jupiter Ascending" is fun, is spectacular, and is in no way sillier than the original 'Star Wars' (as in episode IV). Yes, the gravity- surfing boots were hokey, but no more than light sabers or (Oh) The Voice of Obi from Beyond.
I mean, and flipping' heck! Does everything in cinema have to be mean and retro and grungy and full of old failing and aging superheroes with bad knees and depression? This all getting so tired so fast.
I loved this film precisely because it was full of meaningless gloss, and bless the Matrix Guys for not making another self-referential piece of pablum. It's fun. It's stupid. It has nothing to tell us about the meaning of life.
It's not Deep, Portentous and Meaningful tripe like 'Avatar' and 'After Earth'. Thank goodness!
'Jupiter Ascending' is A-grade Space Opera and let's just leave it at that.
Get a life, critics.

Hope and Heroism in a Dystopian Setting - Nice Futuristic Gadgets
This film has a unique way of illustrating the future and has a rather dystopian feel to it. This is the interesting part though, inside this dystopian reality, a tale of hope, courage and heroism unfolds. The special effects are amazing, the futuristic gadgets total fun, a hero and a girl add a romantic aspect to it and there are a lot of space fights. Some of the action scenes were too long for my taste, but the story was thoroughly entertaining and I wish there was a sequel. The whole atmosphere of the movie reminded me "Thor: Rangarok", probably due to the dystopian setting.
